Coughing is an involuntary action that is done by the human body to expel any foreign bodies that irritate the air passage. There are two types of cough.

  1. Wet cough – This is when the person coughing brings up phlegm.
  2. Dry Cough – No phlegm is produced hence more painful and irritating.

A cough can be cured within a few days but if chronic, it can go on for months at end. Usually, smokers suffer with a chronic cough.
